We have received this information about the possible loss of a 1912 Arts & Crafts house in Church Road, Hanwell.
YOUR COMMUNITY URGENTLY NEEDS YOUR HELP
You may not be aware that a
1912 Arts & Crafts house at 178 Church Road, Hanwell W7 3BP is at risk of
demolition to build six flats and two houses. This loss and over development will
have lasting impacts.
If we fail to protect our
conservation area, it will be devalued and a worrying precedent will be set for
similar schemes. Thanks to the fantastic efforts of local people and a
proactive community campaign, we had an amazing 163 responses to the
developer’s planning application. These include
the Ealing Civic Society, the Victorian Society, Hanwell Community Forum, conservation
area resident associations, the Brent River & Canal Society, Hanwell and Canals Conservation Areas Advisory Panel and the Selborne
The many objections
and quality feedback have caused the developers to re-think their proposal.
An amended application has now
been submitted and we would really appreciate your help to object.
If we can raise a similar
number of responses, there is the possibility that the proposal may be referred
to the Planning Committee for a decision.
This will give us an opportunity to save 178 Church Road from demolition and to prevent over
development and backland housing. We also have support from Ward
Councillors and James Murray, MP for Ealing North, has lodged his own objection.
The proposal remains to build
six flats and two semi-detached houses on a very long, narrow plot. Their overbearing mass, inappropriate scale
and loss of 26 mature trees/greenery will result in 80% of the land comprising
bricks and mortar. The pandemic has taught us that having a neighbourly
community which looks out for each other, retains its green spaces, celebrates
and protects its heritage is vital for our wellbeing and that of future
